11  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Jeff Buckley swap? on: May 26, 2006 10:20:36 AM
I wondered if anyone would be interested in a Jeff Buckley swap?  I searched around here and have seen mention of his songs in many posts, so I thought maybe I could drum up some interest.  There's so little merchandise available, I thought it would be fun to design t-shirts, posters, shrines, etc.  Anything as tribute to the late great artist.  Are there other fans out there?
12  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / homemade dance paws? HELP on: May 26, 2006 09:28:29 AM
Perhaps there are some dancers out there who could help me with this.........

I've started karate this year and its loads of fun but the rubber mat floor we practice on tears up my feet.  I know I probably just have baby feet or something, but my friend and I decided we didn't necessarily aspire to attain the leather soles of our instructor--would not exactly be cute on a girl.  Anyway, I keep getting blisters just on the balls of my feet from practicing forms barefoot.  Its not really kosher to wear socks or anything at practice, but I remember from my dancing days these little thong-like strappy sandle thingies for lyrical dance.  Then I saw these online:


but I don't want to spend near $30 on them.  They look easy to make and I thought they would be fairly inconpicuous, unobtrusive and not too slippery.  From the picture I can't tell though if the lycra type nude material goes in between the toes or not.  Anyone know or have any ideas on how to make them?  It looks just like a little lycra toe sock with a suede-ish pad. 
13  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / WOW! have you guys seen this?! on: April 17, 2006 03:33:43 PM
I was surfing for new fun patterns on Berroco.com and I stumbled upon the album.  Look at this pic I found!

These are so cool.  Wouldnt it be amazing to get married in a dress like this?  Winter wedding, I suppose.  If only I had the ambition, talent, $$, and TIME!!
14  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / My anthropologie necklace! on: March 17, 2006 09:13:15 AM
Here's a necklace I recently made.  I was inspired by the anthropologie necklace here:
My version:

I got some wide metal chain(lightweight or you'll break your neck)and wrapped it in long thin strips of silky fabric.  Some were sheer- these worked best- the stretchy material was a pain in the butt, as was the lace, but I like the look.  I just ripped strips about 1/4 an inch wide.  Where the ends met I used some metallic gold thread and stitched the strips in place, then wrapped the thread around the link for about a 1/4 inch or less and wove in the ends.  I finished the necklace with a string of pearl-like beads and bobble buttons on some oversized saftey pins.  Let me know what you think!  I still have a lot of chain left and I'm thinking of wrapping the whole length and then wearing it doubled--this will take a LONG time though, so it may just become a few bracelettes(sp?) for gifts Grin

(I'll try to get a better photo later)
15  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / 2 embroidered bags--1st project post! on: March 07, 2006 01:23:45 PM
So, like many of us, I made my Christmas presents this year.  Here are two bags I made for the twenty something gals in my close family.  The peacock was my own design and the unicorn was an iron on embroidery design.  I happened upon the sequining accidentally.  I first just embroidered the outline of the unicorn, but I thought the material's print was a bit distracting in the middle, so I filled in the body with clear irridescent sequins.  It took a long time, but it was alot of fun!  I think I'll do more.  Sorry the pix are so bad.  I took hasty ictures before wrapping them and I they looked fine on the small screen of my digi.  The lighting is bad and the beads/sequins are reflecty, but I think you can get the gist.

The unicorn bag has eliptical shaped wooden handles attached with tabs
16  CLOTHING / Designer Clothing Homage / Gucci Jacket on: March 02, 2006 02:52:56 PM
I DESPERATELY want to make this jacket.....problem is, I live in New Mexico now and really have little need for it; however, if I start it now, maybe I would actually finish it for next winter.  Of course, then I'll be bummed I can't wear it.  Maybe I can make it lighter, but I dont want to loose the drape.  Any ideas?  If I do make it, I think I'll make the skirt bit a little more A-lined.

Hope this works, this is my first image post
